History 169: Men, Women and Travel: A History of World Tourism

This is the most recent iteration of my course "Men, Women and Travel: A History of World Tourism." It focuses on gender and tourism, as reflected in the readings and takes a world perspective, focusing on travel and travel accounts from the earliest through the Grand Tour of the early modern period, and the growth of the tourism industry in the last century. Comments are always welcome. 

Re: Help with teaching materials - racialization & environmental justice

I have so many suggestions. But in an EJ course I teach (primarily non history majors, mixed level), I use Christopher W. Wells, ed., Environmental Justice in Postwar America: A Documentary Reader (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2018) as a primary source reader. It has most of the most relevant primary sources for U.S. EJ history including photos, poems, and statements by Black, brown, and indigenous folks. I also assign Wangari Maathai's Unbowed, and undergrads tend to love it (if they actually read it).

Lindsey Dillon's case studies of Hunter's Point in San Francisco are great:
